Bulgakov’s The White Guard at the Lyttelton Theatre, London

The White GuardUp until the 15 June 2010, the (National) Lyttelton Theatre in London is showing Bulgakov’s play The White Guard…

In Kiev during the Russian Civil War, the Turbin household is sanctuary to a ragtag, close-knit crowd presided over by the beautiful Lena. As her brothers prepare to fight for the White Guard, friends charge in from the riotous streets amidst an atmosphere of heady chaos, quaffing vodka, keeling over, declaiming, taking baths, playing guitar, falling in love.  But the new regime is poised and in its brutal triumph lies destruction for the Turbins and their world.

NT Associate Howard Davies directs this major new production, featuring a fantastic NT ensemble cast.
